Get information before leaving
It is the responsibility of each passenger to make sure that he or she complies with the customs, administrative and health formalities of the departure, destination and transit countries.
Document checks are carried out at airports, and the competent authorities (Corsair and the Border Security) are fully entitled to deny departure or boarding to anyone not in order. No exceptions will be made.
We therefore advise you to visit the sites below :
The information provided below by CORSAIR is intended as advice, and is subject to modification.
It is up to you to ask the competent authorities about the documents and various formalities necessary to enter the destination and transit country on the date of your trip.
A passenger denied check-in or boarding because of non-compliant documents automatically loses their ticket. CORSAIR may not be held responsible for denied boarding or denied access to the destination country due to failure to comply with security, health or customs formalities.
Worth knowing: the main causes of denied boarding observed on our flights
- ID card or passport forgotten, lost, expired or invalid;
- Please note: some countries require your passport to be valid 6 months after the return date;
- No visa, or expired or invalid visa;
- Foreign travel permission letter not provided for under-18s;
- This must be presented with the ID card for Fort-de-France, Pointe-à-Pitre and St Denis de la Réunion;
- Surname/forename on ticket different from surname/forename figuring on ID documents.
So take care with customary names, married names, etc.

Formalities for entry into the Canadian territory
Foreign travelers who require a visa to take a flight to Canada or passing through Canada to the final destination must obtain an electronic travel authorization (ETA).
This requirement does not apply in part to US citizens and travelers with a valid visa.
Most of you will need a valid entry document as an electronic travel authorization (ETA) or a visa to visit Canada. This will depend on your citizenship or your situation.
Take precautions before you go and check whether you need a visa or ETA :
